Look, guys, we know: It is too darn early for holly-jolliness. But the Rockettes appeared on the "Today" show this morning to promote the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, and we can't help it—as soon as we see that iconic kickline, we start daydreaming about sleigh bells and mistletoe and gingerbread lattes.
The ever-classic Spectacular opens tomorrow night at Radio City, and to celebrate, the Rockettes took to Rockefeller Plaza to perform their "New York at Christmas" number for the "Today" show cameras. (Appropriately, given the current weather in NYC, the soundtrack included "Baby, It's Cold Outside." Many, many props to those intrepid ladies for rocking less-than-toasty costumes in near-freezing temps.) We got not one but two kicklines, and infinite doses of holiday cheer. After the performance, we also got to hear from 12-year (!) Rockette veteran Danelle Morgan, who talked about all the schmancy new technological updates to the show this year—and about how her dance teacher was also a Rockette, awwww.
We give up: Happy official beginning of the holiday season, y'all. (Ready to go down the Rockette rabbit hole? Learn some of their most famous moves, see what a Rockette's typical day looks like, and discover some truly impressive Rockette stats.)
